Minor threatens parents with knife after taking cell phone away

SPRING HILL - A 14 year old girl was charged with two counts of aggravated assault and one count of domestic battery after she threatened her family with a knife after her mother took away her cell phone.

An arrest report shows the girl and her mother were in a verbal argument over the cell phone when the girl took an eight-inch kitchen knife, raised it over her head in front of her mother and sister, saying, "Nobody is going to touch me."

The girl's sister and mother were in fear of their lives when the girl's step-father attempted to restrain her, the report shows. The knife was in her right hand, and the step-father told deputies he grabbed her arm placing the knife against his inner right thigh, bending the blade.

The girl's step-father was able to get the knife away from the girl, but in doing so received a minor cut on his right hand, according to the report.

"(The step-father also said the girl) bit his left forearm and struck him on the left side of the face," a Hernando County Sheriff's deputy wrote. "(He) was injured and received minor bruises and abrasions."

The girl was placed under arrest and taken to the Hernando County Jail. She will be processed by the Department of Juvenile Justice and be returned to her parents, according to the report.
